Individuality is the quality that makes one person or thing different from all others. Were are all a product of our own unique collection of attributes.

From birth, each individual has the right to have an identity. The identity of an individual is the assertion of his or her existence in a society. It is also a matter of recognition of their individuality and what differentiates them from their peers.

From birth we all develop our own identity which is a fundamental human concept that allows each of us the ability and freedom to enjoy and explore all of our own rights.

Identity encompasses the family name, the surname, date of birth, gender, class, ethnicity and experiences of the individual. Through these details, an individual will hold rights and obligations specific to their status (woman, man, child, handicapped, refugee, etc.).
